Product SiteDocumentation Site Which Resource Instance is Promoted

During the start operation, most Resource Agent scripts should call the crm_master utility. This tool automatically detects both the resource and host and should be used to set a preference for being promoted. Based on this, master-max, and master-node-max, the instance(s) with the highest preference will be promoted.
The other alternative is to create a location constraint that indicates which nodes are most preferred as masters.
Example 10.8. Manually specifying which node should be promoted

  <rsc_location id="master-location" rsc="myMasterRsc">
    <rule id="master-rule" score="100" role="Master">
      <expression id="master-exp" attribute="#uname" operation="eq" value="node1"/>
